What Is the Best Treatment for Nasolabial Folds?

As we age, fine lines become more visible on our skin and can create a sagging appearance. Nasolabial Folds, also known as smile lines or laugh lines, appear at the corners of the nose and continue down to the edge of the mouth, often prompting a lack of confidence in sufferers.


With specialist treatments, The Aesthetics Doctor can reduce these lines, restore skin vitality and ensure your skin appears more youthful and vibrant.

What Causes Nasolabial Folds?

There are many factors that can cause these folds. The most common is ageing. As we grow older, our collagen production slows down resulting in thinner and weaker looking skin, especially around the eyes and mouth. This leaves the skin more vulnerable to lines and wrinkles.


External factors can also play a part in the appearance of fine lines on our skin. Excessive and continuous sun exposure can result in wrinkles and uneven skin textures. Smoking, weight loss, and environmental pollution have also been known to affect the condition of our skin.

What Nasolabial Folds Treatments Are Available?

Nasolabial Folds can be corrected with a wide range of non-surgical injectable treatments. The right procedure can benefit you in many ways including restoring lost facial volume, improving overall skin health and youthfulness, and can even reduce the appearance of wrinkles in the problem area.



For the more superficial cases, microneedling can be the perfect solution. This involves using tiny needles to create microscopic punctures in the skin. This triggers your skin’s natural healing process, further boosting collagen production. This is a safe and excellent option for those wanting to restore a more youthful appearance, whilst making their skin look healthier and more vibrant.

Dermal Fillers

Fillers rejuvenate the skin in a short amount of time and can reduce the signs of ageing. They contain hyaluronic acid that helps contribute to more youthful looking skin. The procedure is non-invasive and fast acting, with no recovery time needed. Here at The Aesthetics Doctor, we offer dermal filler treatments which cater to your individual needs. We also offer cheek enhancements, involving dermal fillers being injected into the cheeks to lift the skin and create a pulling effect that stretches the lines on your skin, making them less visible.


Before undergoing any dermal filler treatment, you will have a consultation with one of our specialists. In this meeting, we work with you to decide the best placement for your filler depending on your facial anatomy. As a result, you’ll experience the extensive benefits of filler with no change to the natural shape of your face.



Our final available treatment is Ellanse. This involves long-lasting dermal filler, made of polycaprolactone (PCL), being injected into your skin to restore lost facial volume. This procedure is completely safe and stimulates the growth of new collagen for healthier, younger-looking skin.

Glad you asked.

Like any cosmetic treatment, as mentioned before, aftercare is an essential part of the process to ensure that you get the best possible results, but it also drastically minimises the risks of any future complications


Reduces the risk of infection

Aftercare helps to reduce the risk of infection, which is a potential complication with any cosmetic procedure. By following the aftercare instructions provided by the Aesthetics Doctor before and after your procedure, you can help to keep the treated area clean and avoid any unnecessary contamination.

Promotes healing

Proper aftercare can also help to promote healing, which is important for achieving optimal results with LanLuma treatment, particularly when your body begins to produce its own collagen. The Aesthetics Doctor will also guide you through any topical treatments or medications that can help to minimize discomfort and promote faster healing.


Minimizes discomfort

LanLuma treatment may cause some discomfort or other minor side effects, such as redness or swelling. Aftercare can help to minimize these symptoms by applying cold compresses, avoiding sun exposure, and avoiding strenuous activities – all of which that could lead to irritation.
